I don't rule out the remote possibility of a higher power/god but since there is no evidence I don't believe in one.

Also disagree with me if you want but agnosticism often seems like a cowards approach to atheism or by extension to nihilism and moral relativism. If you don't believe in a personal god then there is no eternal hope. If no hope then your death now or in 50 years, doesn't matter, may as well die now. If you don't die now your are either a 1) coward or 2) a liar who doesn't really believe what you say you believe.

I have always thought of atheism as either a political statement or a religion of its own. Like you said, they are either revolting, or having faith in the non-existence of a deity.
I was unaware of Ignosticism. I think I will have to put that one notch higher than agnostic, since at least they are engaging the idea.
